About the property

Comfortable house recently renovated, with furniture typical of old Lucca’s farmhouses. The house is located on the nice Lucca’s hills, among olive trees. Guests can enjoy a wonderful view on the Lucca’s plain and city. The house has a private inground swimming pool with panoramic view (4x8) for its guests, with Roman steps. The swimming pool is also equipped with deckchairs and umbrellas, and next to it, with gazebo, table and chairs. The house is provided with a veranda with table and chairs facing the garden, where a walled-in barbecue is available.

The house is located 15 km far from Lucca, but famous Tuscany’s cities, mountains and Versilia’s beaches can also be rapidly reached. This house is perfect to spend a relaxing holiday, for hiking or mountain-bike on the hills, and to enjoy Tuscany’s food, wine and culture. The house is suitable for families, couples and children.

Beautiful house in a great location, loved and managed by friendly, helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house, very well loved by the owners who were keen to share it with us. Inside it is spacious, cool and furnished to a very high standard. However, we spent most of the time outside, enjoying the stunning views from the pool and garden. There are various places to sit with plenty of shade and the pool is kept spotlessly clean. The pizza oven/barbeque house was a particular hit with the 4 teenagers travelling with us. The house provides an excellent base for exploring Tuscany, particularly Lucca and Pisa, although we found it hard to drag ourselves away from our tranquil surroundings. We would love to return and have no hesitation in recommending it to others wanting a relaxing stay on Tuscany.

Fantastic secluded location with stunning scenery

The property was fantastic and the detail beautiful. Perfect place to unwind. The owners were very welcoming on the first day and provided us with a lot of useful information on the area. Highly recommended!

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 5) stayed two weeks at this fabulous house near Lucca. The location is ideal for exploring the best of Tuscany. From the front yard you can see Lucca, Montecarlo (worth multiple visits to explore the amazing restaurant choices) Chianti and the lights of Florence.

The house is beautifully kept and obviously a place loved by Franco and his family. The house has everything you need to be comfortable with the best thing after a hot day of exploring being the well kept pool with a panoramic view of the valley. Day or night, the peace and quiet provide an ideal setting to relax.

Franco and his family look after the house, keep the grounds neat and tidy, clean the pool and are the consummate local source for where to find the best of everything. They clearly love this property and it shows.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough and will be staying here again next tine we're in Tuscany.

Fantastic house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We – family with 2 adults and 3 children – stayed in this house for 1 week and we had a great time. Franco and Giacomo are really doing their utmost to make you feel comfortable and at home. The house is lovely decorated in Tuscan style and has all the equipment and furniture you can think of. The view is magnificent and the pool is great. It’s a perfect base to explore the northern part of Tuscany. Lucca and Pistoia are close by and we really liked Barga (within 1 hour). We can highly recommend this house.
